"We're just going to have to deal with it."
Wow, nice show with a lot of problems! Almost like someone spiked the punch a night early or something. A lot of blown lyrics, right out of the gate with Brent, all the way to the end with a very tired sounding Jerry. Plus I've read other reviews about the sound problems this night too.
Highlights inclued, a pretty good first set, nice Samson jam between a rough start and partial train wreck ending, and a sweet Dew! Seriously, this one's got heart and a lot of it.
The only reason I give this anywhere near four stars is: it's the New Year's run, the Samson jam, and the Dew. Otherwise this is a three at best.
